After losing his fiancée, Ben Covington is unsure he’ll ever love again. But when he sees Bell Wilde, he’s so deeply drawn to her, that he’s thrown for a loop. Maybe it’s purely sexual chemistry that’s igniting this spark between them...or maybe it’s his second chance at love.

*This book contains scenes that may be considered triggers. 18+ due to mature content*

When Charlotte Murphy escapes from the ruthless serial rapist and killer, Loverboy, she finds herself completely lost and scared to death. Lost, frightened, recovering, and in the sights of a brutal killer. In a most odd but clever tactic from the police, they assign Charlie 24/7 live-in protection; a move that is supposed to comfort her and make  healing easier. Somehow, despite the odds, Charlie finds a refuge in officer Nick Andrews and in his arms she finds the strength to heal and the courage to move on with life. Nick finds everything that he wasn’t looking for in Charlie’s eyes and a fight against a killer that becomes personal.

She breaks down, sobbing in such a way I see her knees buckle for a moment. For the first time I feel the need to be truly protective, not just to keep her from harm but to comfort her. I hesitate for a moment, and then I wrap one arm around her. An ethical move but for some reason feels right and normal. Before I can stop her, she throws both arms around me and holds tightly. I pause and take one deep breath before wrapping the other arm around her. She pushes her face hard into my chest as she sobs. Unsure of what to do, I slowly bring a hand up to her hair and let my fingers run through it. She squeezes to me tighter and I find myself holding to her tighter as well, as though locked in my arms can take away the hurt and the pain that she is feeling right now.

“I won’t let him hurt you again, Charlie,” I say, letting my chin rest on the top of her head, “I promise.”
